Uh-oh, seems like Swae Lee is feeling some type of way after getting left off of Travis Scott and Drake's new visual for SICKO MODE. The duo dropped the video from the highly anticipated ASTROWORLD album this week (10/19) and some are already calling it the ‘Citizen Kane’ of Travis Scott music videos. The Butterfly Effect rapper teased the release for a few days and when it finally dropped, listeners quickly pointed out the absence of Swae Lee. The Rae Sremmurd member also took to Twitter to make his own comments and he doesn't seem too happy.
The rapper wrote, "Someone said they didn’t see Swae Lee in the sicko mode video yea I noticed that too." We can't be too sure if Swae Lee was asked to be in the video or if he did in fact film his portion that just didn't make the cut. Hearing the track, however, wouldn't be the same without Swae Lee's distinctive voice singing the occasional "Someone said."
Listeners quickly vibed with the melodic clip of Swae's voice and one user tweeted about the soothing qualities it provides to the otherwise vibrant hit song. It seems that the tweet sparked an idea in the Powerglide rapper because he wrote back that he's going to turn that clip into a full song with verses and all.
Although Swae Lee hasn't revealed the release date for his recently announced new solo E.P., we're hoping the new track will be ready in time to make the cut. The rap duo has experimented with solo projects in the past with the release of their triple powered up album, SR3MM.
The album features a usual project from the group Rae Sremmurd but also mixes in the brothers solo projects. Jxmmi's is titled Jxmtro and Swae Lee's is titled Swaecation. The track list includes a total of 27 songs, all which contributed to the album to debut at number 6 on the US Billboard 200.
In March, the brothers began dropping solo singles starting off with “Hurts to Look” and “Brxnks Truck.” True to form, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi teamed up again to feature one another on their individual spearheaded projects, “Guatemala” and “Chanel,” and have teamed up for the songs “Close” and “Powerglide.”
Maybe on this new "Someone said" track we'll get both brothers to create some magic and extend the hype of SICKO MODE. Fans can't get enough of the song and for good reason, a combo between Travis Scott, Drake, and Swae Lee is kind of all we've ever wanted.
During Drake's 7-day mini-residency in Los Angeles, the Canadian rapper surprised his fans by bringing out Travis Scott. The two performed SICKO MODE while the music video played below them on Drake's highly visual graphic stage.
